I know how to matress stitch the sides of a pullover but I’m stuck as to what I should do for the shoulder seams where the pieces are bound off. Any suggestions/tips/favourite ways of going about this? thanks
I usually do fake grafting–I can’t find an online description but there is a good one in the Stitch n Bitch book if you have that. Let me look around…for a good description.
You can also do a 3 needle bind off if you haven’t bound off yet!
Here is a nice little description and a fairly decent diagram showing how to seam shoulders.
Unfortunately I’ve already bound off otherwise I would totally try the three needles bind off. The diagram that knitqueen suggested looks like the best bet for a realtively neat finish.
Thanks for the help
